It was only a few weeks ago that I saw the contemporary dance performance that got to me most this year. What Akram Khan has achieved with DESH is the most intimate, close-up, tender, personal,... and yet also the most spectacular dance performance I have seen in a very long time. The grass growing from the sky brought tears to my eyes, the small cook trying to walk was terrifying, the discussion with his daughter was so recognizable,... In DESH you sense the beauty of Akram Khan's homeland Bangladesh. But you also sense the person behind the dancer. Check the calendar to see when Desh will be in your area. It is incredible!
